Pub. Date:
This is the full story of the Battle of Okinawa, using the same up-close narrative style and 'grunt's-eye' view of the action that distinguishes Sloan's Brotherhood of Heroes from other war books. It is a gripping story of heroism, sacrifice, and death in the largest land-sea-air operation in US history.
